Congrats to the third winner of our Scouting Safety Quiz

Did you take our May-June Scouting Safety Quiz on aquatic safety? More than 340 people did, and we selected one entrant at random to win a $100 Scout Shop gift card.

And that winner is Lisa Hemmingson, Assistant Scoutmaster of Troop 60 in Canton, S.D.

“The quizzes are a fun way to refresh your knowledge on safety issues within Scouting,” Hemmingson says. “The ‘Water ways’ quiz was a great refresher on making sure that all water activities are not only fun, but also safe for all participants.”

The “Water ways” quiz went over which aquatic activities are appropriate for Scouts, how to qualify as a “swimmer” and how deep water should be for diving.

Hemmingson plans to use her gift card to purchase new merit badge pamphlets and supplies for the troop trailer. Congratulations, Lisa!

How did you do?

You can still take the “Water ways” quiz, but if you want to be entered in our next Scouting Safety Quiz contest, take our September-October quiz: “Back to basics.” These are frequently asked questions we receive, so we thought we’d ask them to you.

Each issue of Scouting magazine will focus on a different BSA health and safety topic and offer an online version of the quiz where you can enter to win a prize.

At the end of the questions, you can submit your name and email address to be entered in the contest, which ends October 31, 2018. A few people took the last quiz more than once. If it bothers you that you didn’t get a 100, you’re more than welcome to take the quiz again. Just know that submitting your information multiple times does not increase your chances of winning.

You don’t have to get a perfect quiz score to be entered in the contest. We will draw one winner at random and will notify them via email. Good luck!
